    > wireless usb netgear connection.
    Well, with USB Netgear wireless device, you might need to check the Netgear website for the driver for Linux.
    RedHat 9 or even latest version of RedHat/Fedora may not have USB wireless device driver built-in.

    The following link give you some information for which wireless card are supported in Linux

    You could also check ndiswrapper:

    There is a list of supported devices. If Netgear doesn't have a linux driver, you might be able to use the Windoze XP drivers in combination with ndiswrapper.
